Having been a square peg all my life , i have had to find BIG holes to fit in without my corners scraping the sides , FPV has been one of those holes but i fear the powers that be are filling it in on top of all of us.
Anyhow If you have seen my other builds , you may have noticed a couple of themes, I can not bring myself to EVA build as the designer intended and I love to fly Z config.
The former is a personality defect.
The latter is a result of many hours of testing , hundreds of hours building , thousands of hours Albert Einstining about the dynamics .
So why Z . Because it minimises props in fov. and with the dji air the video quality is good enough for my needs . I have always not liked the idea of strapping a exe camera to a 3 minute pineapple with a dodgy bannanna. Hoping I dont fruit salid before i land.
Also there are all sorts of theories about cleaner air to the rear props.
I do not know!!!!

This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..

Until recently GoPros were delegated to larger quads. A typical GoPro weighs around 125g and we've only recently begun to mount them on 3" cinewhoops. Even that is a stress on the motors. Now we've got the "GoPro Lite". Remove the battery, displays and casing and you're left with a small, lightweight board and sensor. Wrap it in protective TPU casing and you've got a 30g micro GoPro. The Hero6 is..
